Meeting Description:

The American International Morphology Meeting (AIMM) is intended to provide an American equivalent to the renowned International Morphology Meeting, thereby providing morphologists and morphology students in North America with a venue to present new and developing research.

The AIMM will meet on every even-numbered year, and so will not overlap with the IMM, which is held on every odd-numbered year. The first American International Morphology Meeting (AIMM) will take place September 22, 2012 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It is anticipated that the second meeting of AIMM will take place at the University of California, San Diego, and that thereafter it will alternate between the east and west coasts.

One of the main purposes of the American International Morphology Meeting is to provide a forum for young investigators to present work in morphology, and both students and recent PhDs are especially encouraged to submit abstracts.

The keynote speaker is Gregory Stump (University of Kentucky). The title and abstract of his lecture will be available at a later date.

Call for Papers:

For the 2012 meeting, the theme will be Multiple Exponence, though abstracts on any topic in morphology will be welcome. We will have a small poster session in addition to regular sessions.

Abstracts should be submitted by email to aimmlinguist.umass.edu by March 15. They should adhere to the following guidelines:

- Up to two pages, including examples and references
- Twelve-point type
- One-inch margins
- Anonymous
- In pdf format (make sure to remove identifying information from the PDF 'author' properties)
- In the body of the email provide the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s), title of the abstract, email address, and whether the submission is for the thematic session or the other session.
- Also specify in the body of the email which of the following categories you want the paper considered in: paper only, poster only, poster if not accepted as paper.

The selection and advisory committee is composed of the following scholars: Farrell Ackerman (UCSD), Mark Aronoff (Stony Brook), Gabriela Caballero (UCSD), Greville Corbitt (Surrey), Gregory Stump (Kentucky). The organizing committee is Alice Harris, Seth Cable, and John McCarthy.
